My 1996 Toyota T100 V-6 won't fire on cylinders 4'5'&6. I have replaced the plugs, plug wires, coil, and fuel filter. I have also cleaned the fuel injectors.


Hi Lamar. do not feel that you have a big problem with, Just check all your Vacuum hoses on the engine and surely you do have either a cracked,sheared or broken hose and that what is giving you that strange running. I believe on reving the engine the engine run normal but on idle is shaking badly.
Just check for the Vacuum failure.

Good Luck !

92 Thundebird 3.8...starts hard....really rough idle in any gear...sounds loud. Almost feels as if the engine is shaking


run fault codes and look for position sensors --MAP/MAF/VAF sensor problems and fuel /injector faults.

P020 and P0302 Error codes


You need to have the injector circuit for cylinder 2 checked. Possibly the ground for the injector-which goes into the engine computer-may have a bad wire. The power wire for the injector should have power on it anytime the key is on. When the computer internally grounds the individual injectors, the injector will pulse, or spray fuel out into the cylinder. When the injector circuit malfunctions, no pulse, and you get the misfire.

Would a bad timing chain or timing belt make the engine shake


It could if its bad enough, but it will also display other problems as well. Hard start when hot, pre-ignition loss of power.

You probably have a dead cylinder. like if you have a six cylinder it might be running on only five. could be because of a bad spark plug, ignition coil, fuel injector, plug wire. you should get it checked out.

Hi, I have a 2006 Altima with 31,500 miles. Recently, the engine start shaking when car is Idle but I still feel the shake when driving or at red lights. My second problem is a weird loud (humming) noise...


You don't need to change the spark plugs since it has only 31.5 K. The plugs should last 60K. There is a an adjustment at the gas cable end at engine to increase the idle a little bit. You can increase rpm at idle to 600 RPM. Since your RPM at idle is low that why it is shaking at idle, red lights. Let me know it it is shaking at high speed ( 2500 RPM)

2004 Ford F-350 6.0 Turbo Diesel - Severe Hesitation at Take Off


Some of these engines have a place to drain water out of the fuel system.. Some fords actually have a stick under the hood that you push or pull That opens a valve on a water collection bowl. It's not labeled usually. It might state where it is in the owners manual under fuel water drainage or something similar.. if that bowl is full it will cause hesitation... If it gets over full it will cause runability problems. Another possibility since you said it's black smoke is one of your injectors is sticking at low rpms and squirting raw fuel into the cylinder till the rpms get up enough to burn that fuel off completely then then the injector works a little better.... Do you notice any missing... Feel something under the hood like the air cleaner housing and make sure the vibration is constant and doesn't have a small sudden shake and the n smoothe... And then a small sudden shake again.
If it does have this shake you can trouble shoot which injectors by with the engine running loosening an injector line and seeing if the engine runs worse or not.. If it runs worse tighten it up and move to the next line till you unscrew one and feel and hear no difference... When you find that one that's the injector with the problem.

You may have gotten some bad gas.  This gas could have been contaminated with water from condensation in the gas stations tanks, or just from being old.  I would purchase some HEET brand water remover or SeaFoam fuel additive.  SeaFoam will seperate water and clean your injectors.  Both are very good products.  Also a cheeper remedy is that if you believe it is water, then I would try pouring some rubbing alcohol (like in the medicine cabinet) in the gas tank.  An ounce or two won't hurt and it will help seperate the water and allow you to drive your car.
Any questions, please ask!! And please rate!! Thanks!
